Default 1973 Bronco Build

Nothing really to update. Just a pic while I was testing the sprinkler system.



Oh I did find out I have 3.50 gears. Based on tire rotation to driveshaft rotation.

Probably one day, it doesn't really have any issues with the 351 so if I changed it would probably only be to 4.10's so it could still drive on the highway. I would go ARB front and back to lock it.

It has a 54:1 crawl ratio as is which is decent.

Was thinking about it but don't know if I'm patient enough to take them and drop back off after waiting 12 weeks to get them. I bet I just end up painting them for now.

Kids these days. Just can't do delayed satisfaction anymore! What would it add? A week? Lol

Look good though.

A week is a long time. Lol. Powder coating them might be a little too fancy for this bronco.

I have some work ahead of me anyways. I'm going to have to make new mounts. The ones they provided just aren't going to work. They are too big and don't mount up correctly. They also weren't supposed to weld light tabs on the top hoop so I need to cut those off as well.

I think I have the measurements about right at this point.





Now I need to test fit the rear bumper and go from there.

It looks good on there, strong but minimalist. I forgot, were you not putting a winch on it?

Malls typically don't require a winch
